It was certainly entertaining, but in the end, the Blues walked away frustrated again. Their losing streak bulged to six games on Wednesday with a 6-5 overtime loss to the Blackhawks. The Blues overcame a 5-2 deficit with a furious late-game rally, but it was Brent Seabrook’s first career goal with 35 seconds to go in OT that sent St. Louis away losers for the sixth-straight time.
The Blue’s rally began at the 8:42 mark of the third period, when Mike Sillinger scored on a power play goal assisted by Scott Young and Eric Brewer to cut the Chicago lead to 5-3.
With 2:36 to go in regulation, Peter Sejna made it a one-goal game with his first goal of the year. Then 29 seconds later, at the 18:05 mark, Jamal Mayers tied it up at 5-5 with his sixth goal of the year.
The Blues and Blackhawks both had a league-low six points apiece coming into the game, now St. Louis stands alone in the NHL’s basement. Scott Young had a goal and three assists for the Blues in the loss.
